Re: Airshow melancholy.

Did not get to a show this year. Odd feeling really. First shows were Air Fetes mid 80s. Let's hope some can take place next year, chances look better than they did 6 months ago.

Re: 2021 Airshows

I fully agree that the govt set small lockdowns really only for the purpose of keeping spirits of the public higher. After all, if the first lockdown was 3 months why suddenly is this new one just one? They don't know of course. No-one does. 2 Dec is more palatable that's all. As for airshows, I too...

Could be one of those days of 2 halves weather wise today, don't write it off too fast, we have all seen them in the past. Wind speeds look a bit lively though.

This seems badly worded, I would guess they don't want people bringing alcohol rather than food, that does sound totally odd
